This Single Mom Dressed Up Like a Dad for Her Son’s School Event

Whitney Kittrell, a single mother living in Utah, served her son in an unusual way and now the story, originally posted on Facebook, is going viral.

When her son came home with an announcement that his kindergarten would be hosting a “dads and doughnuts” event, she wrote on Facebook that “her heart kinda sank.” When she asked her son if he would like his grandfather to go with him to the activity, he gave Kittrell a smile.

“No. I want you to go,” he said. “You’re my mom and dad.”

So on Wednesday morning, Kittrell put together her “best dad outfit.” This included a painted on goatee and baseball hat.

“I was so embarrassed but I couldn’t help but smile when he introduced me to his little friends,” she wrote. Her son would say to each of them, “This is my mom… she’s my dad too so I brought her!”

When Kittrell went to leave the activity, her son “ran after me and hugged me tight around my neck and whispered ‘Mom…I know that you’ll always be there and do anything for me. Thank you. I love you.” He kissed her cheek and ran off.

In the post, Kittrell talks about how she has tried to give her son as many normal experiences as possible, even though she is a single mom.

“We have accomplished a lot. Trips alone, teaching my son how to play catch, killing bugs with minimal screaming, countless memories, and a normal life.”

The original post has been shared more than 20,000 times and has over 34,000 reactions.
